COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we forge barley malt and hops from Germany, aromatic raw sugar from Mauritius and yeast from Belgium into our latest beer, Brooklyn Local 1. Behind the full golden color you'll find an alluring aroma, a dynamic complex of flavors. Belgian flair, Brooklyn fortitude and a dusting of our special yeast. To create this beer, we use the old technique of 100% bottle re-fermentation, a practice now rare even in Europe. It gives this beer a palate of unusual depth. Enjoy it locally or globally, as an aperitif or with your favorite dishes. It is particularly nice with spicy seafood and with fine cheeses.

willisread (3546) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle shared at Gremlin. Thanks Tohara-san! Classic Belgian tripel nose. With flowery and estery notes: pear, apple and clove. Clean and crisp on the palate, but with a soft, creaminess. Light clove and pepper on the finish. Hides the abv well. One of the better American tripel clones I’ve had. Superbly good.

BeerRenter76 (1028) - Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Originally sampled on 12/11/08. Local 1 poured a nice looking cloudy,straw yellow body with lots of carbonation and a thick off white cap that left fairly thick lace. Aroma and flavor were both very subtle, on the light side even. Both had faint hints of fruits (apple and pear), yeast and some malts, alcohol was well hidden. Mouthfeel was smooth with a little dryness, overall it was decent beer thats worth a try, but i felt it was too light and didnt have enough character.

Gary (2054) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
750ml . £12.50 . I’m fine paying that in one context, but only when I’m not underwhelmed and I kinda was . I blame myself , drunk and at an American themed burger bar - this was the baller option. I guess subconsciously I still love Brooklyn brewing, their flavoursome Chocolate Stout is a long standing favourite of mine , and Garrett Oliver seems cool as far as beer celebrities go . Pours bright sun kissed orange with a subtle white foam ... Nose is orange peel , coriander spice, striking yeast notes , bready malts . It drinks this way from drunken hazy interpretation.... But nothing special about this American/Belgian marriage.
